The owner of South Point Hotel in Las Vegas says it is the first location with two Cinemark XD Theatres on one property. XD provides the best movie going experience money can buy says Michael Gaughan. South Point opened its first XD theatre last October with Michael Jackson's This Is It making it one of only eight theaters using Cinemark's XD technology. In May South Point added the second XD theatre to its 16-screen movie complex with the opening of Iron Man 2. They are twin theaters both with approximately 400 seats premium projection equipment wrap-around sound systems premium seats floor to ceiling wall to wall screens and digital projection to show both 2D and 3D releases. The XD format includes more than 30 speakers and 70-foot wide movie screens. The Cinemark XD auditorium offers an environment that engages all of your senses and pulls you into the movie says Cinemark CEO Alan Stock. Unlike the competition to the format movies shown in Cinemark XD don't require reformatting for the super-screen allowing the theater to rotate screenings of multiple attractions for audiences.
